Thread: HardDrive problem...ATA patch

  1. HardDrive problem...ATA patch

    I installed Solaris 9 on my intl PIII 0.9 GH and faced the same problem
    with my Solaris 8 installation . The ATA patch.

    Solaris 9 did not see my whole 40GB (40960 MG) only 5898 MB.

    and the auto-layout showed in Sol9 as :
    / 84 MB
    /usr/openwin 360 MB
    overlap 5898
    /var 65
    swap 590
    /opt 26
    /usr 1637
    /export/home 3131

    and I do not know Why Solaris 9 did not see my whole Drive ?
    Also I faced some errors with Sol9 installation like this :

    Error for command "read sector" error load retryable
    sense key : bad block detected
    vendor "Gen-Ata" error code 0x8


    If some body will advice me with ATA patch installation I tried and
    also did not detect the whole size .

    F4-add drive...Then ata processing ...eject ata disk and complete the
    installation with CDA ....
    ALL this did not being my whole drive to be visible to Solaris .

    What should I do ??????????????????????

    Have you gone in with Format and tried to write a label to the disk?
    Possibly a windows partition was on the disk?
